H.U.G.E. Camp Part I

17 December, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 10:17 PM in ,

December is the month of happenings ... the biggest event so far this month was Youth Alive Malaysia's H.U.G.E. Camp 2006.

H.U.G.E. stands for "Have U Got Enuf". This year's H.U.G.E. was aptly themed "SOLD". The point is: "Are you sold to the world, or all sold out for Jesus?"

From December 11 to 14, the Melaka Watercity Resort in Ayer Keroh was the place where hundreds of young people from around Malaysia gathered to sing praises and have fun together.

The campsite was really spectacular. The wooden galley above is a replica of a Portuguese ship during Malacca's colonial days. The resort is surrounded by a huge man-made lake. Getting to and fro the resort lobby and my apartment could not be better than crossing a rope suspension bridge that hung across the lake. We can even go kayaking and go-karting during free times !!!

This is the latest style of ushering people into the hall. Get ready to bend your body and enter the tunnel ! More like a mouse entering a mouse hole. :)

Imagine for every night there, we had a totally exhilarating concert! The worship led by the Psallo Band from Indonesia was simply awesome! We were truly mesmerized by their performance. ...Jump ! Jump ! Jump !

2nd day: Good morning everyone...

The main speaker was Rev. Mike Pilavachi from England, who also founded a youth organization called Soul Survivor. And he was always humorous, jovial and cool...

The pastors including Ps. Clement Wong and Ps. Julie Khoo (from my church) showed many good talents. Rev. Mike tried to sing a Beetles song, Ps. Julie danced her way on stage, cheered by all campers alike LOL!

Me and the Botswanians

"Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head." (Matthew 8:20) Huh??? Yes, it was the most entertaining sermon throughout the camp !

To be continued...

Snapshots KLCC

06 December, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 3:41 PM in

Took a ride to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Center) recently...

A very beautiful day right here at downtown Kuala Lumpur. But the weather forecast reports that it will rain heavily later (that) afternoon. So don't ever underestimate a good weather!

An engineering marvel that brings so much awe to visitors from around the world. No stranger to me, it is the Petronas Twin Towers. Standing majestically, it has been the pride of all Malaysians today.

Jingle Bells are coming. The Malaysia Year-End Mega Sales is also back! What have you bought for your loved ones this Christmas? No doubt, Suria KLCC is a good place to shop for all your seasonal needs.

The mall has just put up their tallest tree. I was at the second floor when I took this picture. Not able to take the whole tree, but never mind. Having Christmas carols played in the background remind me of the enchanting and joyous year-end celebrations that I had last year. Really, everyone I met was already in Christmas mood.

VMCC National Launch

02 December, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 7:21 PM in

The national launch of Visit Malaysia Cyber Campaign was held yesterday (December 1) at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre at 11.00am. Being a Cyber Warrior, I was invited alongside many other Malaysians including students, professionals and corporate leaders.

Cyber Warriors @ Work

Themed "Think Holiday, Think Malaysia!", the launch was officiated by Ministry of Tourism secretary-general YBhg Datuk Dr Victor Wee. Also present were Chief Imagination Officer of Rayma (the initiator of VMCC) Ms Pat Lu, PIKOM chairman Mr Lee Boon Kok and PIKOM PC Fair 2006 organising committee chairman Mr Low Wai Sun.

Visit Malaysia Cyber Campaign 2007


Next year, Malaysia will be celebrating 50 Years of Independence. In conjunction with her Golden Jubilee, all Malaysians are encouraged to do something for their country. One easy way is to invite their friends from all over the world to come visit and celebrate with Malaysia, through the Internet!

The press conference...

But how? Join the Visit Malaysia Cyber Campaign (supported by Tourism Malaysia) now and start sending out email invitations, e-card and e-video invitations and even SMS invitations to your friends overseas. Alternatively, you can place a VMCC badge on your website or blog.

By joining the campaign, you become a Cyber Warrior and you're able to participate in various competitions, in which very attractive prizes are being offered!

This campaign is unique, perhaps it is the first in the world where citizens come together to promote their country via the Internet! ...Malaysia Boleh!

Casino Royale Singapore

29 November, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 1:30 AM in ,

--- Courtesy of Patchay@SkyscraperCity & SSC Forumers.

When was your last trip to Singapore and how did you spend your holidays there? Honestly, I had not much "Buzz" when I last visited the nation state a few months back.

Future Buzz

But in a few years time, things will change dramatically.... The recent announcement of the first casino within an Integrated Resort (IR) at Marina Bay will put Singapore on the forefront of travel destinations in continental Asia if not the world. Very soon, the Singaporean government will announce the winner of the second IR at resort island, Sentosa.

Whose fantasy will prevail at Sentosa?

Take a look at the 3 final proposals and why not dream for your choice in Singapore...

1. Genting-Star Cruises' Resorts World Sentosa

The proposed resort city caters to the mass-market; focusing on family and children's entertainment and edutainment.

Highlights of Resorts World Sentosa:

  1. A theme park by Universal Studios consisting of more than 22 featured mega-attractions.
  2. Quest Marine Life Park is to be the world's largest oceanarium, also include bat rays, dolphin and shark sanctuary and the world's largest collection of coral reef and open ocean fish.
  3. Equarius Water Park, a water theme park with water-based adventure rides such as ‘Water Coaster’ and 'Snakes and Ladders’, all integrated within the natural tropical environment.
  4. Maritime Xperiential Museum, said to be the only museum in the world dedicated to the maritime heritage of Asia and marine archaeology. One of the centrepieces of the museum will be a 360-degree multimedia-rotating theatre where visitors board an Arabia-bound vessel that sank near Singapore 1,100 years ago.
  5. A zone dedicated as the "Shopping adventure of Asia" consisting of the world's largest collection of 'flagship concept stores' such as Cartier, Nike and Hamleys.
  6. Six hotels, including a hotel-cum-casino designed by world famous architect, Michael Graves, a Hard Rock Hotel and a six-star hotel-cum-spa by the world renowned ESPA brand. There will be spa therapies with dolphin interaction in specially created spa lagoons.
  7. A biomed research and learning centre led by world renowned genomics scientist, Dr J Craig Venter.

2. Kerzner-Capitaland's Atlantis Sentosa

The second bidder is by luxury hospitality group, Kerzner partnering developer, Capitaland. The proposed resort, named after the underwater lost city of Atlantis, and the resort atmosphere is set ahead of time in the year 3000.

The resemblance of fish, salad, soaked tissue papers or a Mid-autumn festival lantern immediately comes into your mind. The proposed city will have gigantic glass canopies, if built, will become the most iconic landmark for Singapore.

Highlights of Atlantis Sentosa:

  1. The Sail - two gigantic glass-and-steel structure that looks like a lotus flower, that will constantly change its appearance, driven by dynamic technology systems that run through its architecture and contents.
  2. A water theme park called Aquaventure that would have 14 spectacular rides, such as Squid Tower Slide Complex, River Rides and Crab Playground.
  3. Coral Lagoon, to be the world's largest coral lagoon and the world's biggest man-made coral reef where visitors could snorkel or dive. Within the resort, it has the world's biggest jellyfish exhibition, a shark tunnel and sites for deep-sea scuba diving.
  4. Aquasphere, the world's largest and most technologically advanced aquarium (bigger than Resorts').
  5. AquaLabs featuring a centrepiece futuristic mechanical fish and its habitat as well as other interactive and edutainment contents.
  6. The Gardens of Robotanica displaying some 1,000 species of natural and mechanical or robotic flora and fauna. Guests will also interact with walking robots.
  7. Gastronomical international cuisines in high-end established restaurants featuring celebrity chefs such as Joel Robuchon, Gordon Ramsay, Santi Santamaria and Sanjeev Kapoor.
  8. An entertainment hub for 4 international TV stations - Discovery Channel, MTV, Nickelodeon and Johnson's.
  9. Teens-only Club Rush - with entry barred for adults - will have Internet video games, movies, dancing; and a little chocolate and candy factory targeted at youngsters.

3. Eighth Wonder's Harry's Island Sentosa

Called the Harry's Island, perhaps it is the most 'fictional-looking' resort in the world! Yes, it is also the most expensive plan among the three bidders.

Highlights of Harry's Island:

  1. In the centre, sits a giant artificial dormant volcano island (Jurassic Park look alike arena), which promises free nightly shows and a theme park with 35 rides and attractions.
  2. The Caldera - a centrepiece 10-storey waterfall within Harry's Island.
  3. Ten hotels, including a hotel built around a football stadium affiliated to Brazilian soccer star Pele.
  4. A wellness, spa, yoga retreat run by new-age guru Deepak Chopra.
  5. First ever 'Romance Hotel' cum wedding pavillions by world renowned wedding designer Vera Wang.
  6. On 'Orchid Island', there is a hotel-cum-a cooking school with 50 super-F&B outlets run by French celebrity chef Alain Ducasse.
  7. An oceanarium incorporating rainforest exhibit headed by Philippe Cousteau, the grandson of the late French undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau.
  8. Architectural wonders such as the 'flying deck of cards' hotel-cum-casino called the Crown Towers Hotel, the cubical-style Banyan Tree resort, 'Toy Box' exhibition centre of luxury goods as well as the grand Starwood W Hotel, 8th Wonder Arena and the Franco Dragone Theatre.
  9. State-of-the-art Siemens Command and Control Centre and Star TV studios.

So much to see, so much to enjoy. Genius or creative egos are these companies trying to show to the world.

Then, what kind of resort would you spend money on? I would love to see something adventurous, and preferably integrated within a family-themed wonderland for the enjoyment of all ...especially to my beloved little nephews!

First Ever Fly-niversary

25 November, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 7:06 PM in , ,

So on 18 November, I went to a Birthday Party again.

The party go-ers (picture courtesy of Humblerboy)

This time it was FlyFM's 1st Anniversary. FlyFM is one of Malaysia's newest and fastest growing English radio station. One thing I didn't know is that this station is based in Kuala Lumpur International Airport!!! Ermmm...sounds to me like an exclusive airport radio station..."KLIA FM"?...but it has gone nationwide ever since.

Fly Guy makes us feeling "Fly". (I mean feeling Happy!)

As usual, it was another episode of a rainy evening. We have been praying really hard for the thunderstorm to Go Go Away! True enough by 8pm, the torrential downpour had stop falling on us, as we stood together rejoicing and glorifying "Mother Nature" for answering our prayers.

FlyFM's deejays, Shel and Ben were great entertainers, not to mention others such as Fly Guy, Phat Fabes, Steve, Nina, Basil, Jules, and many more from the FlyFM Team.

THe FlyFM Team and the Celebrations...

There were many local singers performing on stage that night. Much later, we also met Faizal, the finalist in the One In A Million reality show. While performing, he had not only came down the stage once, but more than twice. Interestingly, he had also helplessly climbed over the security barrier that seperates the audience and the stage, almost falling into the hands of the crowd to greet his screaming fans.

Pop Shuvit in action...

Many of the singers were unknown to me before this event ...but of course I did recognise Camilia and Pop Shuvit, the only local Hip Hop Rock band that have more chart-topping tracks in the Japanese market, even beating luminaries like Linkin Park.

I could feel the instant hype; all of my friends were already screaming their lungs out. The performers kept the crowd roaring for More and More...

Yeapieee...popular club DJ Jungle Jerry and Joey G of Channel [V] were also present to further enhance the electryfying atmosphere.

Splashmilk's B"uff"day

21 November, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 3:18 AM in ,

Yeahhh...it was Mikel's surprise birthday party at TGIF One Utama Shopping Complex on 17 November. Happy Happy Happy Birthday Mikel aka Susu (milk in Malay language) aka Splashmilk!!!

Our TGIF Foodzzss (pics courtesy of Jo) -- Guess which one is mine?

I arrived at TGIF One Utama around 7.30pm to meet-up with William aka Humblerboy. William had bought a present for Splashmilk, then we waited for Joann aka Jo to arrive and then we slowly walked towards the restaurant. ...Yahoooo it's time for food, LOL!

From left: Humblerboy, Birthday Boy and Patchay Boy (Me-lah!!!)

The restaurant was very happening that night. Birthday songs and shouts of laughter were heard from every corner. I thought we should also do something happening to the birthday boy.

Me and Shaz

To our surprise, Shaz, who said to Jo that he was in Singapore that evening, came dropping by at our table. Hehehe...next time I know how to give Jo a big shocking surprise...LOL!!!

Me and Jason Siah

The TGIF waiters teased the birthday boy to give a friendly smoochie-smoochie to Sylvia. C'mon boy, don't be shy shy la...LOL! "The adult showtime begins NOW..."

...all hail The Susu Kiss...

The birthday boy was pretty sporting that evening I thought. My advise to you is remember to give a kiss or at least a hug to your loved ones on your birthday.

Some pics courtesy of Jo

We mingled around for hours during and after meal. At the same time, we flashed our cameras around, taking pictures that speak a thousand memories.

Here's the gang gang...

Right-bottom pic courtesy of Humblerboy

From left to right: Susu stands on his chair to sing a song with TGIF waiters and all of us...Susu's Cake (hahaha btw it's blueberry cheesecake ok)...and the two kinds of Susu Pose.

Another memorable birthday party indeed. It's about time to go to bed... ZZZ (yawning) ...good night people. Sweet dreamzzz!!!

Photo album for Birthday pictures Coming Soon.
